Review: Cee-Lo Green - 'Cee-Lo's Magic Moment'

By December 4, 2012

Follow me on:

On Cee-Lo Green's first Christmas album, the rapper-turned-singer delivers a kid-friendly, all-ages collection of songs that are a sharp change of pace from his usual brand of adult-oriented tunes. Cee-Lo's Magic Moment, which was released in the U.S. Oct. 30, 2012 by Elektra Records showcases Cee-Lo's more warm-hearted sensitive side via his remakes of classic tunes like "Silent Night," "Please Come Home for Christmas" and "Baby It's Cold Outside." This collection is dripping with sentiment and lacks any of the dark humor, morbid themes and odd quirks that have come to characterize Cee-Lo's other work. And impressively, it works: this is as traditional, mainstream holiday album that stacks up well against any other Christmas album you may have heard by more traditional artists. Of all the people you might expect to record a cheery holiday album, Cee-Lo Green might have been among the last. After all, he's the guy who recorded the humorously bitter broken heart anthem "F__k You" and before that the hauntingly paranoid anthem "Crazy" as part of the duo Gnarls Barkley. But apparently, a secret Santa lurks within that sizable frame of his, and his heart of gold is on full display throughout the 14 songs that make up Cee-Lo Green's Magic Moment.
